Soooo good....walking through downtown and had to stop in...OMG...the cheesecakes are light and rich..so delicious. Try the Key Lime or my favorite the Kahlua Espresso.

Really good desserts, it's the perfect place to go for a coffee and delicious home made dessert after a fun night with friends or an afternoon treat.

One of the best cheesecakes you will ever have is made right here in Greensboro, NC! I've been going to Cheesecakes by Alex for years now and have never had a cheesecake I didn't like. They take pride in the quality of their food and service. If you've never been, you are missing out!

Same great cheesecakes, even more flavors available more often! The expansion to the space next door has allowed for more indoor seating (A/C is great in the summer) as well as more display cases. They still have the outdoor patio seating. Today my wife and I tried the lightly flavored pineapple; an excellent summer choice. Plus the sweet potato souffle'... More

I am not a major cheesecake fan. My first piece of Cheesecake by Cheesecakes by Alex sent me into dessert heaven. Rich, creamy, flavorful. I am still not a cheesecake fan except if that cheesecake is by Alex.....bring it on!

By far one of my favorite dessert places. And they just expanded in a big way. Go for the chocolate raspberry cheesecake!

If you love sweets, even if you're not a cheesecake lover, this place is definitely worth visiting! The cheesecake is amazing, the atmosphere is great, and they've recently expanded!! There's an outside patio and it's right in downtown Greensboro, so that after you eat all that cheesecake, you can take a nice walk to the park and burn off some... More
